The GUNDAM-adjacent Rick Dias of Jetan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jeddak Odysseus Carter with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 21.174 billion Jetanese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thark. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jetanese economy, worth a remarkable 3,697 trillion Jetanian Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,612 Jetanian Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, farting etiquette is taught in schools, and the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jetan's national animal is the Thoat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jetan is ranked 220,408th in the world and 7th in Alyr for Most Inclusive, scoring 13.36 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
